Rogiet Primary School is a fantastic school with enthusiastic staff, pupils and parents.  The school community is friendly and welcoming.




The project is set to encourage a sense of wonder and imagination through the use of storytelling and making, based in the outdoors. Our catchment is alongside the Severn Estuary in close proximity to the railway at Severn Tunnel Junction, the M4 corridor and Second Severn Crossing in Monmouthshire. We cater for pupils aged 4 to 11 years of age. Our catchment area is Rogiet, Highmoor Hill, Five Lanes and Caerwent and we currently have 210 pupils on roll. We feel that children’s wellbeing is a key factor within our school and if children feel nurtured and content, this will in also benefit their learning and progress in the long term.


Following the success of our Key Stage 2 Creative Project, we would like to provide opportunities to develop the creative skills of our learners and further develop the children’s team-working skills and confidence levels, as well as raising their community values. This project is set toward implementing and furthering innovative approaches in attainment for Literacy and Creative Writing in Foundation Phase.



We are looking for:

  • A Storyteller - maker who can create characters and stories with the children and bring the stories to life through the use of a range of media and would be able to work with children outdoors. Themes to work upon might be:
    • The environment,
    • Roman history – there’s a wealth of Roman sites in the area – Caerwent and Caerleon are nearby and might spark the children’s imagination,
    • Myth and literature which could be used to foster literacy skills.



The project will involve a class of mixed-ability Year 2 students (six and seven year olds).



All practitioners must attend a two-day Lead Creative Schools Scheme training course on November 26th and 27th  in Cardiff. A further Planning Day, to be held with the School Coordinator, Class Teacher and Creative Agent, would be arranged to discuss the implementation of the project at a convenient date towards the end of November. The project will run across the Spring term (Jan-March 2019) and culminate in a sharing event to which parents and the wider community will be invited. The exact schedule will be worked out nearer the time.



Across the Lead Creative School Scheme there is a fixed daily rate for practitioners of £250 per day. This is inclusive of travel and subsistence. You will be paid one day of planning and half-day of evaluation. Please note that the training course is expenses only.

The overall budget for the project is £5000 and partnerships and organisations are welcome to apply.



Please send your CV asap to The deadline is Friday 12th October. If you are selected you will be invited to interview on  Wednesday October 5th.  The interviews will last 15-20 minutes each, and the staff and pupils from the school will conduct them. You will also have to teach the pupils a 5-10 minute session.


If you want to discuss any of the above, please contact the Creative Agent of Rogiet Primary School:  Coral Houtman 07772 998286 or email
